According to the Star-Ledger, this scene occurred after a driver lost control of her SUV when driving in Newark, N.J. Fortunately, after landing in the second story of a home, no injuries were reported.

“Of course,” she added after she saw the SUV, “I wasn’t expecting to see that.”
A dark Nissan Pathfinder was deeply embedded inside the room on the second floor of the house, leaving a clean, gaping 10-foot-by-10-foot hole where two windows once were.
